The Shovel and the Rake

A shovel carving in to soil
     cuts the ground for a time,
But will The Shoveler dig all day?
A rake breaking up clods of dirt
    roughs the land up a bit,
But will The Raker rake all day?
Soil must be turned
     in order to be made smooth,
So seed can be planted,
     and watered just so,
Then crops will grow
     and be harvested
          row by row.
The shovel and the rake
    must have their day
         to prepare the way.

Isaiah 28:24-29
